Scattered showers and thunderstorms are associated with a tropical wave located over southeastern Mexico that is expected to emerge into the Bay of Campeche tomorrow morning.

Environmental conditions appear favorable for additional development, and a tropical depression could form while the system moves northwestward over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico on Friday or Saturday.

However, by Saturday night, the system is expected to move inland over northeastern Mexico, which will end its chances of development.

An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to
investigate the system tomorrow, if necessary.
